Rain, rain go away.... it's blog hop day!

It's time yet again for a Unity Friends with Flair Blog Hop. So grab a cuppa something warm and ride the blog train. Unity has a new sale going on. A free Itty Bitty with your purchase. Check out the specifics that were posted on the Unity blog yesterday and then start blog hopping on today's post.

I made this birthday card for our friend, Billy. (See his name on the banner?) He's turning double nickels and I wanted him to feel like a kid again. Coincidentally, my card features an Itty Bitty called "It's a Good Day" (which you can buy HERE). I colored directly on the trike stamp with red and black markers and got this cool vintage effect. I used the twine twice to "tie" in nicely with the red on the bike. The banner is from the May '10 KOTM called "...a little happy." (How could I not enable you? Lots of cool images on this set. Check it out HERE.) I came up with the sentiment and computer generated it, then I left one panel open for a handwritten note. I'm giving you a couple of different shots of the card because it's a tri-shutter. It folds flat for mailing! So cool. Want the template? HERE you go. All deets can be found in my SCS Gallery.


 
Thanks for visiting! It's pouring here. I hope you're staying warm and safe and dry today.
